Summit Achievement’s clinical team completed a three-day intensive certificate program in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in late February with Dr. John Ludgate. Summit chose this training, as CBT is an evidence-based treatment that has been extensively researched and proven to be an effective form of therapy for many mental health issues, including depression and anxiety.
Summit Achievement’s Clinical Director Caitlyn Cook, LCPC, LCAT, as well as clinicians Meg Paul, LCSW and Mike DeLuca, LCSW joined Summit Achievement’s Executive Director and Clinician Nichol Ernst, LCSW in attending the training. All of Summit’s clinicians had already been trained in CBT in graduate school, internships, and on the job but this certificate training brought their knowledge base to a higher level.
Summit Achievement is committed to providing high quality, evidence-based practices that have stood the test of research and time.
